there on the shores of staten island. it was the same surge that we've saw in new york city up into the east side all along where the hospitals are now being evacuated and also of course into hoboken. it was the same water, the same surge, the same high tide. this was the first pictures though we've seen from staten island. and they are equally as disturbing as we see in other parts of new york and new jersey. >> looks like the boats are little toys stacked upon each other. >> how high the water went. >> i don't know, what could they have done to prevent this? >> well, they could have double tied a lot of them. but you see the little sticks sticking out of the water right there, that's where the dock was. so you can't do much when the dock actually gets thrown away as well. the dock torn up and thrown with the boats. here you see these boats. this is right near the park just thrown right on to the shore here. nice protected cove. actually, there wasn't probably much wave action in here. a great little hook comes down there by that cove to protect this little inlet. but the water goes up

you. ali velshi is joining us as well. he's on the streets of your city. first of all, mayor, what precautions have you taken right now? how are the folks in atlantic city holding up? >> wolf, good evening. we're trying to get through this and do the best that we can to cope with a very difficult situation. we have been successful in getting some of our residents to heed the warnings that we presented to them friday and yesterday to evacuate the barrier island and move to higher ground. unfortunately, not as many folks as we would have liked have taken heed to that warning. back during the last catastrophic event that we experienced, that being hurricane irene, we achieved a 98% evacuation rate. but for whatever reason, this time, we haven't reached that number yet. we think we're somewhere having evacuated several thousand people. but we still have too many people in atlantic city. that creates a very uncomfortable situation for all of our emergency responders and officials are still trying to do the best we can to get people out of harm's way. >> mayor, ali velshi is on the stree

may help them to make their decision. dee in new york city writes, "i think they did matter and the first debate turned tide. romney got to prove he's not some sort of cold, out of touch monster. obama getting more desperate with each passing week has shown what an angry, petty street fighter he is. romney came across as reasonable, smart, able to cross the aisle, capable, and presidential." annie in atlanta says, "honestly, jack, the debates don't mean a thing to me personally, but then i paid attention to what these guys said from the first day they've thrown their hat in the ring. it's a shame we have so much information available, and yet so few of us even bother to read through it." and ken in seattle writes, "some of my favorite tv programs were not on and that was a bummer. in terms of the election, they provided nothing of value." if you want to read more about this, go to the blog, cnn.com/cafferty file or through our post on "the situation room's" facebook page. >> t"the situation room" is one of ken's favorite tv show. we were on, as you know, jack. >> it is good that he

us. david, looks like it's a transportation mess in new york city. what can you tell us, first of all, about the subways? >> wolf, this storm seemed to accomplish the impossible. it took this city that is constantly on the move and stopped it cold. right now, what we're hearing is it could be days before the subway trains start running again. there were seven tunnels that go under the east river, connecting manhattan to the boroughs outside. those tunnels took on water, and now they're pumping that water out. but it's more than just an operation of getting rid of the water and drying things out. this saltwater is going to be an awful lot of damage to their equipment down there, so it's going to take some time to get service restored to those tunnels. in the meantime, bus service might be starting back up later today and into tomorrow, into the rush hour tomorrow morning, but it's going to be on a limited basis. they're saying that with this limited system, it's also going to be free for now. but at this point, commuters don't have a lot of choices. there are only about 4,000 taxis
